Work begins on $18M East County hotel
EL CAJON, Calif. — A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled Tuesday afternoon on an $18 million Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the downtown area of El Cajon.
The 120-room lodging house will be the East County municipality’s first upscale hotel when it opens next year, and is expected to provide a major economic boost for the region.
The 70,000-square-foot hotel will be located near the traditional heart of the city on Magnolia Avenue, close to Main Street.
It will include amenities like a swimming pool, spa, exercise room, indoor and outdoor dining, banquet facilities, and 2,000 square feet of commercial space.
